Luisa walked into the office at Grogan´s Gas Station
¨You want a job,kid?¨asked Mr.Grogan. ¨I sure do,¨ said Luisa ¨I´ll do anything.I´ll wash the floors.I´ll change tires-I´ll even pump gas!¨Mr.Grogan held up his hand.¨No,thanks.I´ve got some thing else kids at the gas pumps.I need more customers.So I´ve got an idea.I want you to dress up like a clown.¨¨A what¨¨A clown!¨said Mr.Grogan.¨You´ll stand on the corner and wave cars into the gas station¨
¨This is the summer job I´ve spend three weeks looking for?¨Luisa said. Mr.Grogan acted like he didn´t hear.¨You can start tomorrow. It will be a lot of fun.¨ The next day,Luisa went to work.She changed in the gas station bathroom.She stood in front of the mirror.She had put on a red and white suit.Her face was all white with a big red nose.Her lips were fat and red.Her eyebrows were big and blue.Her eyebrows were big and blue.
Mr. Grogan and his two helpers started laughing.¨Kid, remember our deal,¨said Mr. Grogan.¨If you don´t get 50 new customers in a week,you´re fired.Now get out there.¨ They had never made that deal. A car full of kids from the high school drove by. They stopped to look at Luisa.¨Drive on in to Grogan´s,¨she softly.¨You´re early for Halloween,¨ the driver said.¨What are you supposed to look like?¨Luisa stared at him.¨You,clown,¨she said.The driver´s face froze
¨ ¨You´re got enough dirt on that car to plant a garden.Drive into Grogan´s for a car wash!¨ Pretty soon parents were driving by with their kids to see the clown.Luisa gave them balloons.She cleaned people´s sunglasses instead of their windows.She made jokes.Luisa was a great clown!
Then one day,he was driving down State Street.There was a really big traffic jam.¨What´s holding thing up?¨ he yelled.He honked his horn,but no one moved.He got out of his car He walked to the front of the traffic jam.There, in front of Sam´s Service Station was Luisa.
